Parole di Lulù
In July 2010, Fabi's daughter, Olivia, died from a meningococcal meningitis. After canceling his scheduled tour, Fabi decided to organize a mega-concert in her memory, involving several Italian singers and friends, including Elisa, Jovanotti, Fiorella Mannoia, Giuliano Sangiorgi, Max Gazzè, Daniele Silvestri, Samuele Bersani
and Subsonica. All the proceedings from the concert were donated to build a children's hospital in Angola. The concert was also released as a DVD, which also contributed raising funds for the same purpose. The DVD, titled Parole per Lulù
, also included the track "Parole parole", recorded in studio with Mina and released as a single.
In 2011, Fabi penned the song "Lontano da tutto", performed by Serena Abrami during the 61st Sanremo Music Festival, and the track "Nel primo sguardo", performed by Laura Pausini as a duet with her sister Silvia and included in the album Inedito
Niccolò Fabi's seventh studio album, Ecco
, was released on 9 October 2012. The album, featuring guest appearances by artists including trumpeter Roy Paci and singer-songwriter Roberto Angelini, was preceded by the single "Una buona idea". Ecco
debuted at number 3 on the Italian Albums Chart, becoming his first top ten album.
Fabi-Silvestri-Gazzè and Una somma di piccole cose
In 2014 Fabi started together with Daniele Silvestri and Max Gazzè the musical project Fabi-Silvestri-Gazzè. The trio released a studio album (Il padrone della festa
), a live album (l padrone della festa – Live
) and made an extensive tour in Italy and Europe.
In April 2016 Fabi released his eighth studio album, Una somma di piccole cose
. The album peaked at the first place on the Italian hit parade.
Fabi lives with his partner Shirin Amini, an Italian painter of Iranian origins. In 2008, Shirin gave birth to the couple's first daughter, Olivia. Nicknamed Lulubella, she died on 4 July 2010 from a meningococcal meningitis. After canceling the scheduled summer tour, Fabi confirmed his daughter's death through his Facebook account.
The couple's second child, Kim, was born on 17 September 2012.
